San Francisco parishes joined in Gay Pride march

July 07, 2011

Three Catholic parishes in the San Francisco diocese-- Most Holy Redeemer, St. John of God, and St. Agnes-- sent delegations to participate in the city's Gay Pride parade. Although these delegations received no official endorsement from the parishes, they did march with banners publicizing their affiliation, and in each case received encouragement from parish officials.

    Didn't Abp. Niederauer turn 75 in June?

    This is shocking but not surprising. San Francisco has been a kind of ecclesial no-man's land for so many decades that it will require an episcopal Hercules to clean out the stables.

    Lots of luck, rpp. I'll buy you dinner if Abp. Niederauer even says tsk, tsk.

    The pastors and priests of these parishes should be publicly chastised; perhaps even temporarily suspended and/or reassigned and not permitted to serve as pastors again.
